Cheese Meat Sauce Spaghetti That Obihiro People Affectionately Call "Chi-Mi" -King in Obihiro-
July 17th, 2016
Coffee King (珈琲きんぐ) is a cafe near Hirokoji street (広小路) in Obhiro city and was founded in 1983. There is the cafe on the 2F of Tenguya (天狗屋), and visitors can enjoy shibui cafe when they go up stairs and open the door. I was visited here around 16:00 on weekdays. That was halfway dinner time. But there were 7 customers at the cafe. All the customers seemed to be local people such as post-office workers, people like student and housewives. Obihiro people seems to favorite getaway.
I sat at a table at once. There are some tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. Cheese Meat Sauce Spaghetti (チーズミート) was most popular when I read a menu. Local people call "Chi-Mi (チーミー)" as a nickname. Many customers indeed had Chi-Mi that tmie, so I ordered a Cheese Meat Sauce Spaghetti and a iced coffee. The price was JPY 950 in total.
The Cheese Meat Sauce Spaghetti is a dish that meat sauce spaghetti covered with cheese is put on a hot iron pan and is cooked in an oven. The appearance looks lasagna. Because the oven is used, it takes approximately 20 minutes to serve. I have never known an idea of the baked meat sauce spaghetti covered with cheese, so I feel a novel dish. But other restraunts in Tokyo and Obihiro seem to serve the cheese meat sauce spaghetti. I do not know which restraunt is their first time to cook it, but the cheese meat sauce spaghetti was begun to cook around 30 ago at the King.
About 20 minutes later, fresh cheese meat sauce spaghetti was served. The style that a dish is served in the hot iron pan resembles the style of Spakatsu(Spaghetti and Cutlet) of Izumiya in Kushiro. This style seems to be a way of East Hokkaido. I sticked the cheese with my fork at once, so the cheese was just oozing out and adhered to the noodles. The taste reminded me of good old cafe. There are some sliced red vienna sausage that I often ate in my childhood, too. An owner said "The cheese meat sauce spaghetti was not an authentic Italian food", but I could enjoy typical tasty dish of Japanese cafe.
